Lauren319 - Hi!!! I know you are over there and it is just great!!! I can believe it, you totally deserve it :D I had my first u/s Tuesday and we saw the hb it was awesome :D I have another u/s this Tuesday if that one goes well I'll be over there with you, just don't want to jinks anything :wink: I am only 6 weeks and 4 days. Thanks for the iron tip, I am taking my prenatal....

Kynlee- Our parents and sisters know and their signifcant others. I told my best firend, she has been a great support though all this ivf stuf and my mom told her best friend. But that is it. No aunts, uncles, cousins, co-workers, or even grandparents know yet! What about you did you tell anyone at all? I will join you over on the PAT board after my next u/s just want to make sure everything is going well. I can also call my obgyn after my next app. And yes I do rub my injection sight, I guess I should try the heat too. Seeing the hb was amazing, I didn't cry though, which I am very surpised. I think I still can't believe it I guess....

Evening ladies

LauraN: ah, I understand. She really produces a huge amount though doesn't she. How are you feeling?

Pocos: im sorry you have had such a sad day. The other ladies are absolutely right about everyone being so different and bfps showing up at different stages. But I know it can make things so anxious. Im really thinking of you.

Maria: how are you?

Leora: how are things?

Tohavefun: are you doing ok?

Nicole: im really sorry, I have no idea about the hcg (what do you use it for?). Did you get your nurse?

Madam x: I have to mix 6 vials each night - three of powder to one of solution so two injections.you really need to check out on the spots, it sounds like anemia ok. Ooh and not so good on the morning sickness. Does it make a difference what you eat?

Tiger; how areou feeling?

Always: did yoy check out the doubling tables?

Kynlee: wouldn't it be great if you get through your whole 40 weeks without sickness:-)

Lauren319: how are you?

Dys: that's wonderful. Congrats on being pupo :-)

Waiting kay: his are you today?

Afm: ooh im really badly emotional today. I've had to really talk to myself to calm myself down and settle myself. I heard a great thing on one of our radio shows - a brain boosting breakfast. In case anyone is interested here is the recipe: a portion of good quality plain yoghurt, portion of blueberries, a teaspoon of vanilla (pod or essence - not flavoring), a teaspoon of cinnamon (anyone who is pregnant check if you can have cinnamon, I know there is some talk it isnt safe as it can disturb the placenta) and then a sprinkle of crushed walnuts :-)

Wehavehope – that is too funny. And you are right about the PIO injections…I agree with you 100%! My butt is going to look like a mine field! So glad that you have 2 more weeks! I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for you!

Kynlee – see! You did it! Okay, now I need to figure out the ticker…YEAH! Great advice, I followed your instructions and was able to figure it out! Thank you! Haha. You make me laugh. I love how you compromised to 8.5 weeks. When you told me 12, I thought, she is one strong woman, I could never make it that long!

Kay – I am feeling totally normal! I’m taking that as a good sign! I totally understand. That would be wonderful to have kids around the same time and you’re right, it’s hard not to picture how things will be…I’m doing the same thing! But, you’re right, we just need to stay super positive!!!

Always – yes, my doubling times fluctuated from 51 hours to 38 hours…totally depends!

Ninde – you are so close! Can’t wait to cheer you on during your cycle. I’m sorry, I don’t know about the difference in meds. I always to menupur.

Pocos – there is definitely still hope! That is very early. I tested at 8dp3dt and my line was barely there! If it would have been one day earlier, I know it wouldn’t have shown up! Do you have more tests? Try again tomorrow ok! We are all rooting for you!

Madame X – I will be exactly 7 weeks the day of my U/S! Geez, they are making me wait forever! I am not feeling sick or anything, but I’m okay with that! Sounds like you are starting to have symptoms. Remember spotting is VERY common with IVF, so if it’s only a little, I’m sure it is nothing to worry about! Chances of miscarriage go WAY down after you’ve seen the hb. Remember that… I’m in the same boat! I want to move over to PAT board, but I don’t want to jinks it! Waiting until my 7 week U/s!

Dys – congrats on being PUPO!!

Leora – dying for an update, girl. How are you?

LauraN – how are you doing?

AFM: had my final beta today! Number is over 12,000! They said it’s looking really good! As everyone knows, my U/S is moving at a snails pace and isn’t until 8/14. Seriously, it is painful. I can’t wait until Sunday when I tell my parents and sister. Can’t wait to tell all of you how it goes!

Baby dust to all of our friends just starting their cycles! We are all here to cheer you on!

Ninde - thanks I'm good. I think I never posted my answer regarding MS, I feel stupid for the way I wrote it. I meant i don't have morning sickness and wasn't exactly sensitive to multiple sclerosis which I don't have. I'm bloated which is one good excuse to miss out on family events, but since nobody else knows i guess they just assume the regular, that I'm being a bit off. Again. The diet book I told you about, the 17 day diet had a recipe recommended to eat all the time very similar to what you wrote. It didn't mention any cinnamon, and I guess I wouldn't use cinnamon now and I think that other than a calming effect the cinnamon basically does the same as the berries which is a good supply of antioxidants. The recipe in the book said you can use Agave syrup as an organic sweetener and I really like this shake. I mix it not only with blueberries but also other berries I get.
Really excited and cross fingers for you to make this cycle the one!!!

Madame x - great about telling the family! They must be thrilled! I'm a bit "envious" of your morning sickness. I never had them and I never knew/know what's going on with me.

Kynlee - it's not long then til you get to tell everyone, glad you DH was willing to compromise. I was so happy to hear you are 2 days apart from your best friend's pregnancy!!! It's definitely a lot more fun to share and experience together with a close friend! We haven't told anyone yet, just waiting til Wednesday's U/S. A bit nervous.

POCOS - The first pregnancy I took an HPT after my very high positive beta (300) and it was a day later and negative. Then I got totally freaked all I wanted was to keep a stick with 2 lines. but even then I realized that this made no sense. I was right as beta double the next day! I don't trust the sticks and try to stay away from them! Please stay positive, you also tested SO early.

AFM - Still bloated!!! When will it go away??? Every evening is the same.

Tiger - sorry I missed you! Great beta number, you go girl! I hope we both survive until our U/S! And about other friends our age being pregnant at the same time - if we don't get lucky as Kynlee - at least we have this group! And yes, I never had symptoms but it doesn't stop me from worrying just a little bit now. I do crave a cracker in the middle of the night - but that can also be me playing games with myself.

Ninde- I hope you are ok, always vent here we will walk you through whatever you need :)

Kay-Sorry you are still feeling bloated have you been drinking gaterade? I think cause you are pregnant that you may not go down since your body is keeping your levels high... :( Did you ask your RE?

How is everyone doing? Been on FB too much lately myself, darn frontierville! lol. Found out through FB that my Niece is in labor...it sucks my mom or dad didn't call to tell me. I love and care about her and her baby, but she's hurt me so I'm done being used and it is totally up to her to make things right and give apologies. Anyway, my Mom keeps me up dated on things and her (nothing ever negative) and she doesn't like that.

Guess I'm supposed to "sit in the dark" since I'm in another country. Facebook is how I knew my Grandmother died :( Anyway, she had an appointment and I guess last night she went into labor according to a cousins facebook. No one called, not even for just a quick, she's in the hospital type deal. I just hope my Mom puts her foot down on helping them. She doesn't know how to say NO and the last thing she needs is to help raise another child like she did for my sister. It wore her out caring for my Niece and Nephew for the years and years of helping. I am finally moving back there FOR GOOD and we won't be moving anymore after that unless it's a few minutes away, so I want to me with my mom. This probably makes me sound horrible, but she needs to enjoy her Grandchildren and be with them not raise them. Her Dad could even let me know on FB with his phone. /sigh.

Anyway, I finally contacted the RE we want to use. He has very low cost which is why him and one other RE left a main hospital. They could provide cheap IVF for couples that couldn't afford it or didn't have insurance that covered it. Of course medications aren't in that cost but hopefully we get some good deals somewhere. I let him know a little about myself and asked him questions before I even have a first visit.

Right now I need to focus on my body SO BADLY! I plan on a Doctor appointment late next month for some blood work and exams to see where I am at. I won't really need a referral since his price includes everything, but he is 2 hrs away so I could get levels checked at a clinic near myself and be covered still. I've heard great things about him and it is just him and his staff so he has a great bedside manner. Cannot wait! I requested to be seen around in Feb to insure taxes are in but willing to have a consult in Dec or Jan.

Whew! Got thru to my nurse. She said as long as my home is the typical Seattle temp then I'm ok. It was out overnight so it was decently cool and in the dark.

Patricia, the mini hcg is part of my stim meds on the antagonist protocol. Last time I did gonal, menopur, and lupron. This time it's gonal, mini hcg, and cetrotide.

thanks everyone! It's a but surreal that its done. They showed me a picture of when they un-thawed it and then 3 hours later because they were running late so they snapped a pic right before the transfer and omg it grew so much! I keep thinking when should I start to test lol, with my 1st I got a + 7dp3dt with my 2nd i got a + on 6dp3dt but this is a blast and it was frozen so I'm thinking maybe 5dpt? I'm already obsessing!

Tiger, great beta can't wait to hear about your u/s!

blueeyed- thats good at least you dont need to get new meds!

thanks everyone for cheering me on! :)

Gina- so sorry your family is being decent about family things... Stay strong girl, sometimes people do it out of jealousy but its tough when its family.... Glad you got to talk to a DR 2013 will be here before you know it and will be cheering you on...

blueeye- thats great that the nurse called you back and even better that it didnt got o waste :)

AFM- I was suppose to help my cousin cook for her daughters party tomorrow and then I got wind that her kids have hand mouth and foot disease so nervous Nelly(me) had to look it up online to see if it could affect me, I saw that there is a small chance i could miscarry so I had to tell her im pregnant and that I couldnt have the kids over I felt so bad but she said she totally understood she knows how long me and DH have waited for this... With that being said I couldnt tell her and not my sisters so before I told her I went to my Sisters and told her and her Husband they are over the moon excited for me my sister couldnt stop crying & I was sobbing lol (must be the drugs) then after we had our moment I looked at her and her husband and asked them to be my kids bella (grandma) and papa they were even more excited... I asked them cause my parents passed away and I grew up without any and i always felt something missing so I want my kids to have people to look up to that can talk about my parents with them at the same time as having that grandparent bond :)
